I'm sort of surprised you can really replace just the airbag cover without impacting the performance of the bag itself. I know that when our earlier Acuras had the Takata recall done, they replaced the inflator unit on the back of the airbag - that seem to be replacable. But at the time when they showed me an example at the dealer's service dept, the airbag and cover seemed to really be a single unit. Frankly the last thing I'd want is to have the airbag explode and the cover not open the right way and risk some wacky injury (beyond the normal impact of the airbag). Options I'd consider are to see if you could dye it or do something minorly cosmetic, or find a complete replacement from a donor car that's in good shape. But that's me... Good luck!
